Garden Delights

Evening, How are you doing tonight? It's been a lovely bright day today,spring is just around the corner that's for sure.
I thought I'd share with you the card that I made for an elderly gentleman. I used the LCI Garden delights digi, Wellies Delight, coloured using Copics and distress inks for the sky. The layout is really simple, I just wrapped some hemp around the card and tied a button onto it. The little tags are hand cut, and added to the card with a brad. I then wrapped a tiny piece of hemp around the brad. The sentiment is a stamp also from LCI, actually, To You was stamped by inking up parts of different stamps.
 

The inside is also very basic with just layers and inky stitching. Don't forget to check out the Ladybugs TLT blog today for a chance of winning one of the latest Teenager digi releases.
I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
CBN17, Floral,
CSF47, Spring,
IWD137, Things with wings,
MIMwith Kraft, Anything goes,
CCH111,Green,
TPE40, Kraft,
CWWC14, For the boys,
GL36, Birthday,
KKKG, For the boys,
CYDA41, Men& Button,

That's it from me for now,
 thanks for stopping by,
